I would recommend this to anyone in a heartbeat, but if I knew someone who had skin like mine I'd buy them their first bottle!

The skin on my face is super-sensitive: I have mild rosacea, sometimes get zits AND dry patches, plus am prone to eczema. Even if I just splash water on my face (no soap) I need to moisturise right away, else my face quickly feels like the Sahara desert...

In the past I have tried face creams by Clinique, Olay, Elizabeth Arden, Eucerin* Redness Relief, Chanel, various drugstore brands, Burt's Bees... the list goes on - but although these brands moisturised well, they made my rosacea flare up.

Aveeno Ultra-Calming is the only moisturiser I have found that calms my skin, minimises outbreaks of rosacea and other blemishes. It was recommended by my dermatologist who gave me a sample to try 2.5 years ago.

I've bought this face cream ever since and wouldn't use anything else. With other creams I have to use my Rx steroid cream every week; with Aveeno Ultra-Calming it's more like once a month.

Worth adding that I travel overseas a lot and sometimes am forced to use other face creams. So, I have intermittently used something other than AU-C on my face over the past 2.5 years, and I am always SO GLAD to get back to AU-C, because I know that within a week of my skin will be looking and feeling much better.

Bottom line: this cream not only helps my skin calm down, but keeps it calmer for longer. People generally think I have good skin and am usually shocked when I laugh and say "Oh no I don't!"

= Mild Cons - surely outweighed by the Huge Pros! =

The smell is a slightly medicinal floral smell. A bit odd, but it's not unpleasant. If your skin is anything like mine it's nice to have a product that doesn't smell like 'nothing' or full medicinal. Now I just associate it with relief!

The consistency sometimes feels a bit grainy, but it absorbs fairly quickly and evenly.

I do wish it had a higher SPF for my fair skin than SPF15. Other Aveeno face creams have SPF30 but I notice that these others make me break out - I guess that's the SPF ingredient, which is why I think of this as a 'mild' con.

Sometimes the pump doesn't 'inhale' the cream when you have about 1/3 bottle left. Instead of banging the bottle upside down into the palm of your hand to get the cream out, try tapping the (closed) bottle right side up on a hard surface. This seems to distribute the cream more evenly in the bottle so it can get get pulled up again by the pump.

Yeah, I wish it were cheaper, but it's worth every penny.

* I recommended Eucerin's Calming Creme for moisturising the rest of your body.

Having super-sensitive skin and having had good luck with the Aveeno Positively Radiant moisturizer, I wanted to like this and had planned it as a replacement to my Olay Sensitive until the original Olay Sensitive formulation is back on the market in April. Unfortunately I'll keep looking. Simply put, Aveeno Ultra Calming was awful. It burned my sensitive skin going on , and the fragrance is too strong for sensitive skin users. My skin turned bright red, burned and stung, and I had to wash the product off immediately. In fact, with 3 types of alcohol, a chemical sunscreen known to be irritating to sensitive skin, and a prominent fragrance, this product should NOT be labeled for sensitive skin. Had I read the ingredients before purchase instead of just relying on the claims on the label and in the ads, I would never have purchased it. After one use, I gave the rest of the bottle to my sister who fortunately has less sensitive skin than I.

      I have sensitivity to sunscreen and this product has an SPF15. I cannot use it because it irritates my eyes. My dermatologist recommended it but I can't use it. However, it was light and inexpensive.

        I started using this moisturizer after my skin broke out with a bad case of eczema in the winter. It did a great job of calming my skin, reducing redness, and soothing the painful irritation I was having. I highly recommend this product for anyone suffering from eczema or skin irritation. I tried several different brands and products, but this by far surpassed them all.

          I have been using this moisturizer daily for a few weeks now and I really like it. Usually I am sensitive to products that contain sunscreen- either they irritate my skin or cause me to have an acne break out, but this one has not. I think that it has reduced some of the redness on my face, although I didn't have much to begin with. It is a little greasy but not bad and nothing that can't be fixed with a little powder makeup. Overall I have been very pleased with this product.

              I used to use primarily Clinique face products. However, my skin is changing and I wanted to consolidate the number of products I use in the morning. This moisturizer is a one-stop shop. I have redness on my cheeks and forehead that has been minimized after repeated use of this product. I experienced some flakiness on my forehead before using this, though it's no longer a problem now. I use several other Aveeno products and think they are spot-on for sensitive skin. Great and quick way to moisturize in the morning, offering sun protection and redness relief, and gets rid of that dry tightness that I used to feel on my skin after cleansing.

                      I'm probably on my 10th bottle of this sunscreen. It has excellent calming properties and is the most effective in dealing with the redness on my face.

                      Ive read some of the criticisms of the sunscreen ingredients and I have this to say: one should NEVER rely 100% on a topical application of sunscreen for protection. Avobenzone is known to be most stable in conjunction with certain other sunscreen ingredients...

                      "A number of different companies have developed systems to stabilize avobenzone in the final formulations. For example, a combination of avobenzone and 2-ethylhexyl ester (octocrylene) has been shown to achieve a photostable product.[4] The addition of diethylhexyl 2,6-naphthalate also makes avobenzone photostable.[5] The combination of diethylhexyl 2,6-naphthalatate, avobenzone and oxybenzone is known under the commercial name of Helioplex™ and it is present in UltraSheer® and Age Shield® sunscreens (Neutrogena®/Johnson & Johnson). The addition ofTinosorb S® (Ciba Specialty Chemicals) has also been shown to photostabilize avobenzone.[6] Confirmation of avobenzone´s photostability in a given formulation is difficult unless the sunscreen´s chemical stability has been studied and the results are published in a peer reviewed journal. In the absence of such studies, physicians can get indirect evidence of the photostability of a given formulation from UVA protection factor determination with methods such as persistent pigment darkening (PPD)."

                      But the issue that most people will have with sunscreens are the fact that they need to be reapplied every two hours (who does that?) and that they need to be applied properly.

                      You must not rely on ANY sunscreen for absolute protection. Use physical protection as well, and make sure you reapply.

                      This is an excellent product that does what it says it does.
